Final Report - ANCIEN (Assessing Needs of Care In European Nations)

Project ID: 223483
Funded under: FP7-HEALTH


This is the final report of the ANCIEN project which received funding under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). The project’s main objectives were to analyse the effect of demography and lifestyle on care needs, the supply and demand of informal and formal care, the potential role of technology in LTC, efforts to improve the quality of LTC, to project the use of LTC on the basis of developments in needs and supply and to assess the performance of different LTC systems. The report begins by summarising the project and then proceeds to go through each of the work packages to describe their milestones and achievements. The report concludes by noting that the innovations proposed were either new analyses or resulted from a novel combination of existing models into a more comprehensive modelling framework. New typology of LTC systems extends the traditional distinction between the 'Beveridge' and 'Bismarck' organisational models of social security, and also paints a more subtle picture than the simple geographical 'Scandinavian' / 'Central European / Mediterranean model.
